Joe Aguilar began his career painting pottery for his mother, Susana Aguilar, He also made pottery with his wife, Rosalie, through the 1940s. In the 1950s, after the passing of Rosalie, he created a fascinating group of polychrome pottery including both plates and vessels. He was one of the few potters at the time still using traditional techniques and designs for his work. This wide bowl is slipped red on the inside and cream on the outside. It is painted in black with a rain cloud design around the rim. The bowl is in very good condition with no cracks, restoration or repair. It is signed on the bottom, “Joe”.
